'Pardon wouldn't save Berlusconi's Senate seat'

Rome, August 14 - A presidential pardon for
ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's tax-fraud conviction will not
affect next month's vote on stripping the ex-premier of his
Senate seat, the head of the Senate immunity panel said
Wednesday.
A pardon would cover the one-year conviction for the crime
but not the accompanying six-year ban from office, Dario Stéfano
of the leftwing SEL party said.
The Senate is expected to eject Berlusconi, rocking the
fragile left-right coalition that depends on his support.
President Giorgio Napolitano cheered Berlusconi supporters
by saying he might consider a pardon Tuesday night but stressed
the three-time premier and media magnate must spend the year
under house arrest or doing community service.
